Melissa was previously a successful Chemical Engineer before running her own multiple 6 figure business. When she was a kid it was instilled in her mind that to be successful, it is either to become a doctor or be married and have a husband. That is because her parents when they moved to the US from Hong Kong, they know just very little English, just “Hi” and “Thank you” and other than that, the words “Doctor” and “Husband.” Growing up she’s always way ahead in school, attended community college for her math classes.

You move into management; you’ll be making more money. But then ding, ding, ding nothing happened she is still working hard and in odd hours. And it kind of a realization that it’s not going to change any time soon.
